How libertarian is the government?

Nick Timothy reckons that the British government is hooked on 'libertarian ideology'. He says this like it's a bad thing. I look at the evidence for this so far at Spiked today...

A libertarian government would have immediately abolished the Online Safety Bill, scrapped the sugar tax, repealed the smoking ban, privatised the NHS and legalised cannabis. None of this has happened and very little of it looks likely to happen. Instead, we have a colossally expensive energy price cap and rumours that random drug testing could be introduced in offices.
